Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 2:10 p.m. The 
first item on the agenda was the Annual Report on Admissions and 
Financial Aid — UM/Amherst, UM/Boston and UM/Worcester. 

In a basic summary President Knapp felt that the reports 
showed a good year for admissions. 

Larry Benedict and Dave Taggart gave the report from the Am- 
herst campus. It was noted that there is presently the largest 
freshman class in the history of the University. Because of this 
alternative majors were offered to 2300 freshman. The mean SAT 
scores were 40 points above the States average. They were 462 
verbal and 508 math. It was noted that freshman minority enroll- 
ment had declined.

(Doc. T83-

Chancellor Corrigan said that 4,000 students had been absorbed 
from Boston State. Also a hiring freeze had been imposed so some 
Boston State staff members could not be placed. It was noted that 
admissions applications had increased by 17% and that UM/Boston is 
the only land grant University in New England to see this increase. 
Minority admissions are the highest in the history of the Univer- 
sity at a time when minority enrollment is decreasing in other 
colleges and universities. 

UM/Boston is also holding "Back to College" seminars for those 
adults seeking information on returning to college. 

Chancellor Tranquada stated that the greatest problem facing 
his campus was the disappearance of subsidized loans.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Although there has been a decrease in the number of applica- 
tions at UM/Worcester there is an increase in the measure of 
achievement of entering students. UM/Worcester also showed a 
poor record in minority admissions. 

- The next item on the agenda was the Proposal for a Master of 
Science in Nursing — UM/Worcester. This resulted from a series of 
consultations with the other campuses. Following brief discussion 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, subject 
to the concurrence of the Board of Regents , 
the Master of Science in Nursing Program at 
the University of Massachusetts at Worcester 
as described in Doc. T83-001. 

There was then discussion on the Waiver of Requirement to Re- 
turn from Sabbatical Leave — UM/Worcester. Trustee Troy felt that 
the campuses should begin to make the obligation to return from 
sabbatical more stringent. Trustee Robsham stated that since 
there have been several requests for waives that consideration 
should be given to reviewing the present policy. 

It was then moved, seconded and

fairs Committee meeting at which the Trust Fund Management Policy 
had been discussed. There was also a review of the sub-committee 
that met on February 2 and of the letter that President Knapp sent 
to Trustee Kurzman answering his question. 

Trustee Kurzman then reviewed his concerns on the Trust Fund 
Management Policy. He stated that Trustee Knowles has answered 
many of his concerns during the sub-committee meeting. He re- 
viewed what he felt was conflicting information from the Building 
Authority, the campuses and the President's office. He was assured 
by General Counsel Searson that any discrepencies between the Uni- 
versity and the Building Authority had been resolved. Trustee 
Kurzman then recommended that the policy be passed. 

Trustee Murphy then raised his concerns about the costs in 
fees. He felt that the policy is based on the assumption that 
FY84 reserve will be available. He felt that the fee increases 
are actually more than the policy indicates.

UM/Boston — 

Chancellor's 

Report 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The campuses long range plans are being forwarded to the 
Board members and would be discussed in February by the Executive 
Committee and by the full Board at a special meeting in March. 
Draft plans have been submitted to the Board of Regents and com- 
plete plans should be finalized by June. 

Differences in the admissions policies between the University 
and the Regents are being discussed. 

The first meeting of the Telecommunications Corporation is 
February 11. 

The Joseph Healey portrait unveiling will be held in April at 
the Healey Library on the Boston campus. 

Chancellor Corrigan then reported on the success of the Bulger 
Scholarship Award Dinner. He noted that every High School in 
Boston was represented. 

The University of Massachusetts at Boston has been awarded a 
grant from the Ford Foundation to establish a center for the im- 
provement of teaching. This will include Seminars for quality 
teaching of undergraduates. 

The Chancellor presented an overview of the Kurzwell reading

UM/Amherst — 
Chancellor' s 
Report 



UM/Worcester- 
Chancellor 's 
Report 



Chancellor Duffey reported that the present freshman class is 
the largest in the history of the campus. He feels that the trend 
will continue as applications increase and occupancy of the resi- 
dence halls is up. The request for courses is greater than their 
availability. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported that February is cultural diver- 
sity month with activities planned throughout. 

Two of the Medical School faculty members have been presented 
with national awards for heart research.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Pediatric Department at UM/Worcester has been chosen as 
a participant for a survey in infant disease. 

The Chancellor then noted the appointment of Dr. Brian 
Blackburn as a Professor of Pathology. 

Admissions at UM/Worcester show a decrease in applications 
although this is a national trend in medical schools. To date, 
ninety percent of the present applicants have been accepted. 

Trustee Troy then gave the report of the Committee on Aca- . 
demic and Student Affairs. 



BoT 
2/9/83 



The first item was the Report on Admissions and Financial 



Aid. 



Larry Benedict and Dave Taggart from UM/Amherst reported that 
this years' freshman class was the largest ever and that alternate 
majors had to be offered to 2300 students. SAT scores were 40 
points above the state average. The number of students receiving 
financial aid had increased, yet there is an unmet need on the 
campus for such aid. Alsos , Amherst is the largest processor of 
guaranteed student loans. 

Applications at UM/Boston are up 17% and UMass is the only 
land grant University to see this increase. Minority admissions 
are the highest in the history of the University. "Back to 
College" seminars are being held with counselors available to 
assist students in applying for financial aid. 

Because of the disappearance of subsidized loans the present 
graduating class at UM/Worcester has a deficit of $26,000. There 
has been an increase in the measure of achievement of entering 
students yet a poor record in minority admissions. 

The Committee then recommended a Master of Science in Nurs - 
ing Program — UM/Worcester, for the fall of 1984. This would re- 
quire six full-time faculty members. There is discussion among 
the three campuses to institute an identical program. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To approve, subject to the concurrence

There was then some discussion on the Procedures for Umbrella

moved, seconded and

Fee-For-Service Trust Funds set forth 
in Doc. T83-004. 

Trustee Sweeney then reviewed prior meetings of the Trust Fund 
Management Policy and of the questions raised by students and 
Trustees. Student Trustee Murphy asked that "student fee review 
committees" be included in the review process. Chancellor 
Corrigan asked that it be changed to a campus review committee 
since there is already one established and that it would include 
a student. The amendment was changed to read "appropriate student 
fee review committee." Trustee Murphy also asked that the policy 
be amended so that the impact statement be included in the motion 
thus ensuring that fee increases due to full costing reserves will 
not exceed 1.1% and 1.4% in FY84 and FY84 respectively. 

Trustee Kurzman felt that this motion was locking in the Uni- 
versity Administration rather than protecting the student. The 
amendment did not pass. It was then moved, seconded and

BqT VOTED : That the Board of Trustees will name 

9/15/83 a review committee to study, research 

and report back to the full Board 
within 120 days with respect to the 
following areas of concern: 

A review of the activities and programs 
of the University in the areas of alumni 
relations, development, and public in- 
formation. Particular attention is to 
be given to the scope and organization 
of present available resources, develop- 
mental achievements over the last five 
years, and anticipated goals for the 
future. Consideration also should be 
given to the efforts being made in these 
areas by other major universities; 

A review of the present organization of 
alumni association and its activities 
with special emphasis on the opportuni- 
ties for University-wide cooperation in 
such matters as structure, funding, pub- 
lications, and the status of Boston State 
alumni ; 

A review of the advisability of recommend- 
ing to the full Board of the formation of 
a standing committee to provide a perm- 
anent oversight of policies and opera- 
tions in alumni activities, developmental 
efforts, and public information. 

The Review Committee shall be made up 
of three members of the Board, two of 
whom shall be alumni members, the presi- 
dents of the three alumni associations, 
and a seventh person to be named by the 
chairperson of the Board of Trustees. 
(Doc. T83-078) 

There was then lengthy discussion on the Univer- 
sity Relations and Development Organizational Plan . 
Chairman Quinn felt that since each of the campuses 
would have an officer for Development that a Vice 
President position for Development in the President's 
Office was unnecessary. He also remarked on the pro- 
cedures that each Chancellor had used to select a 
Vice Chancellor for this position. Trustee Knowles 
agreed that a central person for development was un- 
necessary.

Trustee Robsham suggested adding an amendment 
that would delete the position of Vice President from 
the proposal.

central office position would give the idea of a one- 
University system.

but before implementing it the Review Committee would

agenda — Tuition Increase and Tuition Retention Fund . The tenor 
of the discussion was that while the proposal had great merit 
there were too many unanswered questions surrounding it. 

At the conclusion of the discussion Trustee Robsham moved 
that the matter be laid on the table. It was then seconded and 

VOTED : That the matter of the tuition increase and 
the Tuition Retention Fund be laid on the 
table. 

There was no further business to come before the Board and 
the meeting was adjourned at 3:20 p.m.

The Trustees then considered the following motion: 

MOVED : To approve the FY85 Budget Request contained 
in Doc. T83-070. 

After the motion was seconded a discussion ensued. Several 
members of the Board expressed dismay at the lack of Trustee input 
into the budget request process prior to the request being sub- 
mitted to the Regents. There was also concern expressed regarding 
the cuts the Regents had made in the University's request. 

Trustee Sweeney moved that the vote be amended to include a 
statement deploring the cuts and asking that a meeting be arranged 
with the Trustees and the Regents. 

The Trustees then discussed Trustee Sweeney's proposal amend- 
ing state-merit. There was opposition to amending the vote and 
there were those who felt that the statement was vague and/or 
abrasive in tone. 

Trustee Sweeney withdrew his amendment and moved that the 
Board either table the budget request or vote not to approve. Be- 
cause of the time constraints of the budget process this motion 
was denied. 



Trustee Carlin suggested that there be two votes — one dealing 
with the budget request and one dealing with Trustee Sweeney's 
statement. This suggestion was accepted and it was 

VOTED : To approve the FY84 Budget Request con- 
tained in Doc. T83-070.
